                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHELUM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, TRIBAL COUNCIL, since 
DOGS OF WAR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see TUSK win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, KID KOALA beat DAWE GONNIT and DAWE GONNIT lost 2 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, RUNNING DEER has lost 
the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
COLLEGE RADIO #4, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was JOTUN.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JHELUM's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the JHELUM arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of JHELUM.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

way.  Running toward, not away.  Ouch. -- Cusster

anything of mine for you to be jealous OF. -- Blind Betsy

Snapping Turtle -- Dot by dose! -- Dawe Gonnit
